Cultivating high yields, community, and self-sufficiency from a home farm

In The Tiny But Mighty Farm, author Jill Ragan of YouTube’s Whispering Willow Farm teaches you how to turn a typical suburban backyard into a productive farm.

Backyard farming is about regular people who live in regular houses turning all or part of their property into a productive, high-yielding farm. Unlike gardening, market farming takes a very deliberate approach, with the main goal being to grow as much food as you can with as little land and as few resources as possible. Everything is done with planning and purpose, rather than as a hobby. Whether your property is one-tenth of an acre, one full acre, or somewhere in between, there are so many opportunities to grow vegetables, fruits, and herbs in creative and high-yielding ways.

If concerns about food security and the rising cost of food have you feeling uneasy, or if you just want to
play a bigger role in feeding your family and your community, starting a backyard farm is the answer. With Jill as your friendly and encouraging guide, you’ll learn how to grow food for your family and, if you want, sell part of your harvest for a profit. From discovering what kind of farmer you want to be to selecting the best high-yielding varieties and planning out and preparing your growing spaces, it’s all covered in these pages.
 
With Jill’s help you’ll learn:
 

  • The best tools for running a successful farm (hint: a tractor isn’t on the list!)
  • Advice on whether to grow in the ground, in raised beds, or indoors
  • How soil health impacts the longevity of your backyard farm
  • Whether heirlooms or hybrids bring bigger yields
  • Ways to use structures like high tunnels and greenhouses to improve production
  • The many satisfactions of growing food for others and how much money you can expect to earn


In the process of cultivating food, you’ll also be cultivating yourself, your family, and your community in the most beautiful and inspiring ways. With help from
The Tiny But Mighty Farm, food self-sufficiency and seasonal, organic eating is an achievable goal. Big yields from a typical backyard is what a well-designed, functional mini farm is all about.

Hi friend,

I believe we’ve all been called to something, and for me, it’s the garden and my community. It’s raising a generation aware of their food and how it’s grown and cared for. It’s to encourage every single person that they were called to do great things. And it’s to offer you beautiful, ethical goods that empower you to live a purpose-filled, intentional lifestyle in your kitchen and garden. 

I’ve never been so proud of the work I’ve done before, and I hope throughout our shop, you will feel inspired to grow your own food and cultivate your own self-sufficient, sustainable lifestyle.
